Robert Griffin III was not happy with the NFL’s decision to settle with Deshaun Watson.
On Thursday, the NFL and the NFLPA agreed to settle Watson’s suspension after the QB was accused of sexual misconduct by over 20 women.
BREAKING: The NFL and NFLPA have agreed to a settlement on discipline for #Browns QB Deshaun Watson, who will serve an 11-game suspension and pay a $5 million fine for violating the league’s personal conduct policy, per league source.

NFL commissioner Roger Goodell praised Watson for “doing the hard work that was necessary for his return to the NFL.”
“Deshaun has committed to doing the hard work on himself that is necessary for his return to the NFL,” Goodell said. “This settlement requires compliance with a professional evaluation and treatment plan, a significant fine, and a more substantial suspension.”
After the NFL announced the suspension, RG3 took to Twitter to bash the league for settling with Watson.
The NFL had an opportunity to show it had learned from its ugly history on standing up for Women with this Deshaun Watson case and IT FAILED. 11 games and a 5 million dollar fine doesn’t fit what he was accused of doing and found to have done by Judge Sue L. Robinson. Sickening.

RG3 would later appear on ESPN to say that he was “sick for all women” following the Watson settlement.
